Sipo Veneer

Sipo Veneer

Sipo is also called Utile, and grows in the moist, high forests of tropical west and east Africa, specifically in Sierra Leone, Cameroon, Liberia, Gabon, Uganda, Angola, the Ivory Coast and Ghana.

Sipo has a light brown sapwood that is distinct from its heartwood, and when first cut, Sipo’s heartwood is pinkish brown, darkening in colour to a rich, red or purple brown.

Sipo texture is moderately fine and the grain can range from interlocked to irregular, which will yield a wide, irregularly striped figure on quartered surfaces.

Sipo finishes well, and filling the grain is recommended to attain the best finish.
